The Nature of Love

Taught by Jules van Schaijik, Spring 2009

Love plays a central role in human life. It is both our origin and our ultimate end. All desire it, and no one can be happy without it. But what exactly is it? How do we recognize and attain it? What are the different kinds of love? How can we distinguish between a genuine love and its many look-alikes or corruptions? How does Christianity change our understanding of love? And how is love related to sexuality, and to new life? It is questions like these that are addressed in this course.
